We think to raise money for cancer treatment or cancer research or to raise awareness of the problem or something.
What we didn't miss was seeing the Port Captain's boat and several pangas, one with flags blowing in the wind surrounding two kayakers and four swimmers.
We also didn't miss the big stage and loud music they had going on at the landing spot
Apparently this was so the swimmers would know where to go and never have to raise their heads out of the water or something.
I'm sure they could have heard the music from Balandra (about 10-12 miles away).
So to get away from the loud music we went to the new Rancho Viejo Restaurant on The Malecon for drinks, tacos, chili rellanos and so Dave could entertain us with his Pope impression
